The beautiful scenery of Somerset County and the water flowing gracefully down Riversports are reasons enough to come here and paddle. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way there are lots of good rivers for that around here. Getting some good exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great reasons to
    come. If you're coming from Somerset it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill
up quick. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state is often easier than elsewhere, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that many of the sections in this state are safe for beginners.

Briefly about the general area:
You'll meet a lot of people from Confluence here; you need to take a look at Horseshoe Bend if you're here. Take a hike on the Great Gorge Trail, and a day on the slopes of Seven Springs is just what you
 
need. This river has it all. At Riversports during the summer months highs are in the 80's while night lows are regularly in the 60's. High temperatures during the wintertime are normally in the 30's, and nighttime lows through the wintertime for Riversports tend to be in the 10's. Riversports is a wet place that gets a good deal of rainfall. The month of July is the wettest with most of the rain while February is ordinarily the driest month.
